thanks as always for your comments. i do appreciate them. thank you for joining me today. i'm carol costello. cnn "newsroom" continues now with ashleigh banfield. >> we begin with carnage and chaos. breaking news in the heart of lebanon's largest city and its capital, beirut. a large and deadly explosion happening in the middle of rush hour there. a car bomb apparently the weapon. it was apparently detonated in the city's center, right around one of the main squares. at least eight people dying. you can see the pictures filing into cnn. scenes like this playing out at this moment. rows of mangled cars, charred buildings, people trying to rescue, ambulances rushing to help dozens of those injured victims. stay with us as we continue to process the information from this breaks news story. we'll have developments throughout the day right here on cnn. and another very big story we're continuing to watch develop, a remarkable new report out of benghazi about a man that witnesses insist the was the ring leader in the attack that killed our ambassador and three diplomats, yet a man that ha
. i want to ask carole goldberg to stand up. and this question is for governor romney. >> the outsourcing of american jobs overseas has taken a toll on our economy. what plans do you have to put back and keep jobs here in the united states? >> great question. an important question. because you're absolutely right. the place we've seen manufacturing go is china it's now number one. it used to be the united states. a half a million manufacturing jobs have been lost total over the last four years. one of the reasons for that is people think it's more attractive in some cases to go offshore than to stay here. we have made it less attractive for enterprises to stay here than go offshore from time to time. what i had do as president is make sure it's more attractive to come to america again. this is the way we're going to create jobs in this country. not by trickle down government. we are going to hire more government workers, raise more taxes, put in place more regulations. trickle down government has never worked here,er in worked anywhere. i want to make america the most
in for carol co costello. glad it's friday. i know you were up late, watching the debate. all it needed was a ring announcer, right? prime time slug fest known as the vice presidential debate lives up or down to expectations. in this corner, joe biden, the experienced brawler, squaring off with the challenger, up and comer, paul ryan. both men trying to win on points. both men doling out punishment. listen to this. >> you can cut tax rates by 20% and still preserve these important preferences for middle class taxpayers. >> not mathematically possible. >> it is mathematically possible. it's been done before. >> it has never been done before. >> it's been done a couple of times actually. jack kennedy lowered tax increase growth rate. >> now you're jack kennedy? >> so who won? we asked folks who watched the debate who won. according to the cnn/orc poll 48% said ryan performed better. 44% gave it to joe biden. that's within the margin of error. let's get some perspective on this. jessica yellin is our chief white house correspondent. ron brownstein is the editorial director for the national
you so much for joining us. i'm don lemon. carol is off today. high stakes and a high noon showdown on capitol hill as we look at live pictures of the capital. potentially heated hearing on the deadly attack of the u.s. consulate in libya. republic republican-led hearing is demanding to know how security failures led to the deaths of the u.s. ambassador there and three other americans. were warnings ignored for political reasons? did the white house have any motive in first denying it was terrorism? depending on which party you ask, today's hearing is either election year grandstanding or an effort to better protect american lives in the future. liste listen. >> is that it's because they wanted the appearance of normalization. that's what they wanted. that fit the obama narrative moving forward. >> you know it's one thing to make make allegations that are back bid facts. it's another thing to make allegations and then search for the facts. we've heard a lot of allegations flying around. just today in depositions we've heard things that are contradictory to some of the allegations th
responses. no time for them this morning but i will read each and every one. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me. >> hello, everyone. i'm ashley. it is 11:00 on the east coast and 8:00 on the west coast. good morning to you, california! >>> how about that debate last night? you didn't catch that long awaited first-ever head-to-head matchup between president and his republican challenger, the obama camp is probably somewhat grateful that you didn't. but if you did catch it, you may not be surprised by numbers like these. two-thirds of debate watchers polled by cnn and orc believe that mitt romney bested the president. that is the biggest win of any presidential debater since we first started asking the questions of that back in 1984. check out this number. 82% said that mitt romney did better than they expected, but only 1 in 10 said he did worse. as for the president's performance, 6 in 10 say that he did worse than expected. just 2 in 10 said he actually did better. cnn's dana bash joins me now with more about the stats and the sound bites and to borrow a line from our friend and
'm ready to move. >> he made me ready to move. i'm carol costello. thank you for joining me today. "cnn newsroom" continues now with ashleigh banfield. >> hi, everybody. i'm ashleigh banfield. nice to have you with us. it is 11:00 here on the east coast and 8:00 on the west coast. so u.s. coasters and all you late sleepers on the east coast, you are not, in fact, waking up in a time warp this morning. though you may wonder when your eyes fall on this. the u.s. jobless rate for september. that's not a typo, folks. no way, no how. 7.8%, .3% lower than the number back in august. and the lowest number since january '09. the month president obama took office. actual jobs added, less of a bombshell here, only 114,000. most of them in health care, transportation, financial services. manufacturing jobs actually took a hit last month. 16,000 of them gone in the manufacturing sector. but why would i crunch these numbers when we have the expert in the business, ali velshi, joining me live. let's leave politics out of it. let's talk numbers, facts, sheer numbers and what they say about our economy
. thanks for your comments. facebook.com/carolcnn if you want to continue the conversation. i'm carol costell you. thank y thank you for being with me. "cnn newsroom" continues now with ashleigh banfield. >>> most important, anticipation of the first face-off is a mile high. in ten short hours, the president and his republican challenger are going to share this stage for 90 minutes of give and take on issue number one. and a few other domestic policy flashpoints as well. the economy is due to take up three of the six segments that are laid out for tonight, with one segment each devoted to health care, the role of government and leadership/governing style. and by a pretty wide margin going in right now, the voters expect president obama is going to outdebate his opponent, but both men have taken great pains to downplay their own chances, downplay the expectations. our dan lothian is up very early at the university of denver. and, dan, i understand this is the fourth time that these two men have really ever encountered one another in person. is that expected to have any effect when they
child molester jerry sandusky learns his fate, faces his victims. jason carol is inside the courtroom for the financial sentencing hearing and he joins us next. [ rosa ] i'm rosa and i quit smoking with chantix. when the doctor told me that i could smoke for the first week... i'm like...yeah, ok... little did i know that one week later i wasn't smoking. [ male announcer ] along with support, chantix is proven to help people quit smoking. it reduces the urge to smoke. some people had changes in behavior, thinking or mood, hostility, agitation, depressed mood and suicidal thoughts or actions while taking or after stopping chantix. if you notice any of these stop taking chantix and call your doctor right away. tell your doctor about any history of depression or other mental health problems, which could get worse while taking chantix. don't take chantix if you've had a serious allergic or skin reaction to it. if you develop these stop taking chantix and see your doctor right away as some can be life-threatening. if you have a history of heart or blood vessel problems, tell your doctor if
in the presidential election here. just on friday, i spoke with carol hunter. she is the senior news director of the paper. she very much so agreed with me. iowa up for grabs. >> it's pretty much like ohio in that it's very much a toss-up state. all the polls are showing it pretty much dead even. there's a rasmussen report out that has them both at 48%. the rolling averages are all within the margin of error. it's just going to be close, close, close, right down to the wire. and how precious those six electoral votes are just shows how close the entire national campaign is. >> mitt romney spent saturday focusing on florida. he had three, count 'em, three separate events there just yesterday. today romney is in ohio with vice presidential candidate paul ryan. and in florida, romney kept hammering home his message of a failed passed four years. >> he's asked what he's going do to get this economy going. we've had four debates, three presidential, one vice presidential. have you heard him lay out a plan yet as to what he's going to do to get this economy going? >> no! >> he wants four more years
? >> toe truth to tell mike carol says it's the kind of case a supreme court might prefer politicians to resolve because the law is so murky. >> it would be best if congress really weighed many. the court is faced with a really difficult job here because the text of the statute really seems to be hard to reconcile. >> if any of this sounds familiar for you, it may be because the court recently tackled a similar case, but the opinion ended up a tie vote with justice kagin recusing herself due to the role she played mr. it when she was solicitor general. this time, though, she is expected to participate. brook. >> joe, thank you. joe johns for us in washington. >>> coming up here, candy crowley, host of cnn's "state of the union." we'll talk to ler about hurricane sandy and how it's affecting the presidential race ask how that may play out. also, about some recent key newspaper endorsements and whether they really even matter. that's next. e.

adjusting to new textures. it's good to make sure the foods are soft, smooth and small. >> i'm carol costello. thanks for joining me today. we continue now with ashleigh banfield. >> same players, same issues, absolutely different format, whole new ball game. what a show at hofstra university as president obama faced off with mitt romney for what you might call 90 minutes of political fireworks last night. you can be forgiven if you thought you were watching a showdown because the second presidential debates was worlds away from the first one two weeks ago. this time the president and the governor brought intensity and energy unlike the first time around. the exchanges were bruising. both candidates taking every opportunity to go on the attack. president obama more aggressive, out to make up ground after a flat first performance and mitt romney standing his ground, hoping to keep his momentum going. take a look. >> i don't think anyone really believes that you're a person who is going to be pushing for oil and gas and coal. you'll get your chance in a moment. i'm still speaking. and
was interesting, carol simpson moderated the 1992 presidential debate, and that was when you saw bill clinton, george h.w. bush, ross perot, they were the candidates at the time, and she said the town hall style doesn't allow -- specifically she saiding for a female moderator to ask some of the tough questions because it really is just kind of passing the mike from person to person. what do you think of that, what her critique? >> i'm not sure what the -- actually i have carol's debate on a dvd in my office, and i was going from the most recent. i have seen charlie gibson, and -- this debate has -- once the table is kind of set by the town hall questioner, there is then time for me to say, hey, wait a second. what about x, y, z? you said this or you said that. you're sort of the -- they launch the discussion, and then the moderator furthers the discussions as you said this and now you say that. that kind of thing. we hope that kind of group effort can pin down both of these men on a variety of issues. >> and watching the last debate, candy, what do you take away with that in terms of how both
